Peach Cobbler


Summer just isn't the same for me without stone fruit desserts. Think cherries, peaches, apricots, and plums. These are the fruits of summer, and I LOVE using them in desserts like pies, or in this case cobbler!


This peach cobbler is crazy easy and fast to make. As much as I love a good peach pie, this recipe is such a breeze to make in comparison that I simply can't resist whipping it up on a hot summer day.


The batter mingles with juicy peaches and caramelizes beautifully in the oven to yield a sweet hodgepodge of crispy and soft textures. A scoop of vanilla ice cream is the cherry on this figurative sundae.


Peach Cobbler
Serves 6

Peaches:
5 peaches, peeled, pitted and sliced
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Cobbler Batter:
6 tablespoons (3 ounces) unsalted butter
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 cup milk
Ground cinnamon

Cook the sliced peaches, sugar and salt in a saucepan on medium heat until the sugar is dissolved and the peaches release some of their juices. Remove from heat and set aside.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut butter into chunks and add to a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Place the dish in the oven while it preheats to allow the butter to melt. Once melted, remove the dish from the oven.

In a large bowl mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the milk just until combined. Pour the mixture into the pan over the melted butter, and smooth it into an even layer.

Spoon the peaches and juice over the batter. Sprinkle cinnamon over the top. Bake for about 40 minutes until golden and bubbly. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, if desired.
